received overwhelming number of stories from my constituents with concerns about the health care law. >> 23,000 are losing access to the state sponsored program which covered those with preexisting conditions, seniors and small children and small businesses. one small business owner, greg from my district shared this story with me. i want to share this with diane. i operate a small painting business and very happy with the cover tennessee program for small businesses and their employees. it had a small co-pay and covered up to $25,000 each year. it covered 12 doctors visits and annual physical at reasonable costs and this is being canceled effective january 2014 because it does not meet the requirements of obama care. this directly contradicts the comments made by president obama that we could keep our existing program. they had affordable health care that they liked but they didn't get to keep that. and i ask, is this right or is this just for this group of people. these 28,000 citizens of tennessee are now forced to find new coverage plans on the health care website there are people out t
that these are just real americans committed to following the law and catching bad guys at the end of the day. it's important we get to the privacy issues that are important. i just wanted to ask this particular question. i dpsh some talk about a permanent advocate in the fisa court. i scratch my head a bit, and i can't find that anywhere else, and in a criminal grand jury, there's no advocate on behalf of the person they're seeking indictment; is that correct? >> that's correct. there's no advocate, and even when a witness goes in a grand jury, they don't go in and are not allowed to go in with an attorney, and in particular, probably the closest am ji is the acquisition of a wiretap for domestic criminal law enforcement, and that doesn't involve any sort of adversary process at all, but an ex parte process with the government or agent going in similar to the fisa process we have now. >> and by design, the court was supposed to be that adversary -- too strong a word -- but to check the compliance with the law and constitution; is that correct? >> correct. this is the constitutional protection th
into treatment in the first place. there is 4 l's, liver, livelihood, lover or the law. those 4 things. liver, livelihood, lover and law. within those l's is when somebody shows up in my door, someone suffering, a family member suffering who brings somebody in. when it company ms to treat we know there is different types of treatment, there is evidence base treatment. there is good evidence for it, we do it. there is evidence free treatment, there is no evidence whatsoever and there is evidence proof treatment. one of those evidence proof treatment is incarceration treatment. there was an office inspection in general report and eventually matt case became supervisor for it. i have been involved in other places. treatment in custody doesn't work. flash incarceration does not work. as far as the treatment that do work for alcoholism, alcoholism is a chronic disease like diabetes. hypertension and emphysema. when we look at outcomes for chronic disease, a landmark study for the journal medical association in 1999, showed that results for treatments were no worse or better than any other chronic

that is setforth in the ordinance. understate law and the constitution when the city imposes development fees such as this, the city must base those fees on a finding that there is a nexus between the amount of the fee charged and the impact of the fee. so before the board adopted the condominium oh conversion ordinance in june, the city hired a consultant on the impact of the affordable house is in the city. that study was part of the board's packet when you considered the condominium conversion ordinance in june. that study conclude that there is a nexus between condominium conversion and the need for affordable housing. that converting two condominiums creates additional need for affordable housing in the city and concluded that for condos that are worth $300,000 that convert the impact on the city in terms of affordable housing need is $21,000 and the impasse of conversion goes up depending on the value of the condominium oh as the value of the condominium oh goes up. the ordinance relied on that study and adopted as part of it's finding of that study and applied a $20,000 per unit fee fo

the massachusetts health care law. the same law that become the framework for the affordable care act. i don't remember conservatives complaining about the law then. back then everyone was all smiles, even this guy. a top official at the conservative think tank, the heritage foundation. look how happy he is. but now suddenly the heritage foundation is the group leading the charge against the president's health care law. it's even supported senator ted cruz's anti-obama care tour this summer. and today senator cruz continued that crusade at the headquarters for the heritage foundation. >> it is a particular privilege being here at heritage, heritage plays such an important role in helping articulate and defend conservative principles across this country. and in no fight has that been more apparent than in the fight over obama care. >> but republicans were on the other side of that fight just a few years ago. they've completely flip-flopped. now the whole right wing is against it. why? because president obama is for it. but he's come too far to back down now. >> and if if was hard doing it jus
republican complaints the new health care law is forcing the cancellation of many existing insurance plans. hundreds of thousands of people who have purchased their own insurance have reportedly begun receiving notices that their plans will be canceled or changed because they no longer meet the loss coverage requirements. 26 palestiniand prisoners as part of the agreement that reopened u.s.- backed peace talks earlier this year. it is the second wave of the releases that will ultimately free 104 of the thousands of palestinians in israeli prisons. as jubilant crowds greeted the freed prisoners in the west bank and gaza, israel announced today it plans to construct 1500 new homes in an east jerusalem settlement. the u.s. brokered israeli- palestinian negotiations are continuing behind closed doors. in a statement ahead of the prisoner's, the top palestinian negotiator yasser abed rabbo said israel's current stance in the talks is its most hardline in over 20 years. he said israel is seeking to hold onto major parts of the occupied west bank, "undermining the possibility of establishing ,"so
's . that started some conversations that initiate neighborhoods and law enforcement on the nightlife and entertainment. because of some of the work that you have done here, we have moved some conversations politically in which we have much more collaboration, much more cooperation and much more creativity when it comes to brainstorming. i want to thank your office to help us enforce the rules and i want to thank those in this room as well as those in c mac that gave my office ideas to make sure our party planning world would make sure it's successful that folks that operate parking lots are also responsible partners. all of these could not come from the work that all of you are doing with our entertainment commission staff to make sure that we are working together and moving in the right direction to ensure that we have the most successful and the best an most exciting nightlife in the country. i'm really excited about the fact that within a few short months we are going to be kicking off the america's cup in my district and hopefully we'll have the most amazing parties to entertain
for the president of the united states. he's coming to friendly territory to try to sell a health care law that is sputtering and getting a lot of people protesting on the day his health and human services secretary was getting a real grilling. she took responsibility for that. the president will take responsibility for a law that he says is going to do a lot more good than bad in a place where a former governor by the name of mitt romney came up with health care for his constituents. the president is going to make a point of mentioning that, too, had a bumpy beginning. mitt romney by the way, has taken to facebook to say not at all the case. big apples, big oranges and this is a lemon, mr. president. now to the president selling what many people say is indeed a lemon, his law. >> it's good to be back in boston. it's good to be back in boston because one of america's best governors introduced me, deval patrick. give him a big round of applause. good to see congressman bill keating here. give bill a big round of applause. i want to praise somebody who was not here. i just left him. but he w
this law work. they voted over 40 times to repeal the law. they shut down the government and threatened to force a default in order to stop it. they're rooting for failure. madam secretary, can you tell us what would be the impact on americans health insurance if republicans had been successful in their efforts to defund or repeal the affordable care act? >> well, i think that the estimates of the congressional budget office is that would have increased the deficit by about $110 billion in the first decade and close to a trillion dollars in the second decade. we know that we have 42 or 43 million americans without health insurance at all, some of them medicaid eligible and some over the medicaid eligibility. 30 governors so far, republicans and democrats, have declared their support for moving ahead with medicaid expansion, but absent that, the affordable care act, those folks would be without any kind of health security. and in the private market, what we know is it takes a real toll. but i'd say the biggest issue is not just the financial toll, not the community toll, not the country
be grandfathered in. >> she's lying because the grandfather clause for those plans, right in the law, had an old list of exceptions that made the grandfather clause meaningless. compare it with the grandfather clause for unions in the very next paragraph where there, that is guaranteed period, as the president said, without the long string of fine print to make it meaningless. stuart: got it. mr. waxman is on, getting political, go. >> he said tens of millions would lose their insurance, but in fact everybody in this country is going to have action cess to health insurance because they won't be discriminated against. they said that it would explode the deficit and yet the reputable organizations like the budget office says it's going to save 100 billion dollars over ten years. so we've had a litany of objections from the republicans about the affordable care act which has driven this to such a frenzy, they even closed the government. so, now, we have you before the committee and you're being asked, i suppose later you'll be asked about the website, but let me pursue this question about individua
care law, but said ultimately, she is accountable. >> i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of health care dot guv. so let me say directly to these americans, you deserve better. i apologize. >> chairman fred upton accused sebelius and others of false advertising prior to the healthcare.gov launch. >> over the months leading up to october 1 launch, the secretary and her colleagues at hhs repeatedly looked us in the eye and testified that everything was on track. >> after a lot of finger pointing in recent weeks, marsha blackburn from tennessee preced on who is to blame and asked if it was any of the top medicare officials. >> michelle snyder is the one responsible for this debacle? >> well -- excuse me, congresswoman. michelle snyder is not responsible for the debacle. hold me accountable for the debacle. i'm responsible. >> in four than four weeks after the launch, the website was taken off line again last night and remained out of commision all morning. >> the program has crashed and burned at least three times and the user is still having problems.
over obama's new health care law, it has to do with what president obama has been telling americans about how this will affect health insurance for individual buyers. >> if you like your dr., you will be able to keep your doctor. if you like your health care plan, he will be able to keep your health care plan. first of all, if you have health insurance and you like your dr. and you like your plan, you can keep your doctor and he can keep your plan. no matter what you have heard, if you like your doctor and you like your plan, you can keep it. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage of the plan you have. nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have. our approach would preserve the ride up -- the right of americans to keep their plan. >> we are now learning that that couldn't be further from the truth. 15 to 75% expect to get notification that their health insurance has been canceled. that is all because their existing policies may not meet the standards mandated by the new health care
americans who have to pay for their own health insurance now have to switch to fl comply with the law. we'll give the affordable healthcare act a checkup, who will have to change their plans and why, and how will it affect young healthy americans. the success depends on the young signing up in large numbers. >> on capitol hill today marilyn tavenar, the administrator for cms answered tough questions about the affordabl affordable . >> i want to assure you that it can and will be fixed, and we're working around the clock to deliver the shopping experience that you deserve. >> reporter: but new to the hearing, individuals receiving cancellation letters from their insurance providers. >> i would take them back to the free affordable care act days if you were in the market, half the individuals in the market did not stay on their policies, they were kicked off for pre-existing conditions. they saw their premiums go up 20% a year. now, in fact, the issuer has decided to change the plan didn't have to. plans were grandfathered in in 2010. if they didn't make significant changes in cost sharings
up in there educating myself about the law, i know is fast to get in there, but when the wheels are turned to come home, it's slow. i couldn't accept it. people are like they are going to do this to time. i said no, this is clear. this was what was supposed to have been done from the beginning. even my families, my loved wupz ones that lost. that made me fight more. i never gate gave up my fate. my hope is restored. >> with that i would like to thank all of our panelist. thank you. [ applause ] and we are now going to move to our second panel. while they take their seats, this idea of forced treatment versus constitutional rights has always been a tension that we've had in our criminal justice system. there is an issue that came up earlier this year that you may have read about involving this implementation of a court that was supposed to treat individuals who were suffering from long-term alcoholism. and the court was set up in a way where individuals were not being arrested for a crime but instead were being jailed for contempt of court as long as 120-150 days in jail. my of
by the law. those individuals whose insurance has canceled, they can go back and buy a policy that is that is the same. >> of the administration and not take the warnings that it wasn't ready, but that's not the crux of the issue. back in 2010 president obama said and then said many times over if you like your plan you can keep it. seems like there was an asterisk or something that should have been said there, but it may cost you a lot more money than you expect. there are a lot of people who didn't know that was going to happen. >> well look, the point is it may cost you more. it may save you. over all by your estimates people in this market will end up paying on average much less than they paid beforehand. once you factor in the tax credits they can get but that's not true for everybody. some will pay more, some will pay less. there will be a probably be a third of this market who pays more. >> again it's just--you can get why this gets under people's skin because that was never part of the sales job. it's not that it may not be real, true and necessary but people didn't hea
candidate mitt romney, as you might remember, signed the law seen as a model for the affordable care act. let's take you now to the president. >> it's good to be back in boston. it's good to be back in boston because one of america's best governors introduced me, de valuval patrick. [applause] it's good to see congressman bill keating here, give bill a big round of applause. [applause] i want to praise somebody who was not here. i just left him. he wears his heart on his sleeve. he loves this city so much, and it shows in what he's been doing for years now, one of america's best mayors, tom benita. and it's good to see all of you. you know, i was just at the airport, devall was kind enough to meet me with mayor benino, and he went back to work so he could wrap up before first pit pitch. i'm well aware that a president's visit is not the biggest thing going on in boston. i understand that. i tried to grow a beard, but michelle, she wasn't haling it. i am also old enough to remember a time when the red sox were not in the world series three times in ten years, but i know the chance to win
uncalled for. >> the relationship between the community and law enforcement is strange. >> he says those concerns are shared by many in the community and it is time that the elected officials step up. >> transparency and honesty and integrity, they don't feel they have that right now. what dialogue can we create to ensure that we have that, it is quite frankly does not exist right now. >> the the community mourning andy lopez, the community can heal. >> just know that this thing is not going to be in vein. >> we have to do this from occurring again. we have to start building and focusing on bringing the community together and better relationships between law enforcement and the community. >> before the funeral service, more than 1000 people marched for andy lopez today of the largest to be held in his name. >>> protestors made their way t shauf in sew shauf in santa rosa. >> i came as a father and my heart is broken for the family. >> the question was whether the teen would be kill if he was white instead of latino. it was only later they discovered it was an air soft bb gun made it look
care law that i think is bad for patients as well as doctors and nurses to take care of them as well as the taxpayers this -- the problems with the bad side are only the tip of the expert. the law itself is fatally flawed in terms of keeping your doctor and all of these cancellations of policies. gerri: i will show some numbers. we have been running a tally on the cancellations. i have something. if you add up all these numbers from all over the country, hundreds of thousands of people getting cancellations. kathleen sebelius was saying that there not cancellations. if they are not, what are they? >> there cancellations, and there are more than some. more and more of these grand father plans will have to make enough changes to comply that there will be canceled, no longer legal for sale which is bad. >> the regulations they wrote after words. the tower of regulations. they've really got very restricted in the regulations when the president said if you like your insurance to keep it. really only if the white house likes your insurance you can keep their insurance. the white house is n

they put a name on. there's no law that says a title of a bill has to be truthful and sometimes that's how you can end up with a bill calling itself affordable care, when a majority lose their insurance, don't get for re they need or, example, find out in three to five years when they need a new pacemaker, the new law will not allow them to get it. those are problems. and what i have also found more and more of are senior citizens who are now beginning to figure out that when the aarp endorsed bamacare, i don't think it's disrespectful to the president justll the bill obamacare, as the president and others called the bill that governor omney signed in massachusetts, romneycare. i don't consider it disrespectful to former governor romney to call it romneycare. i don't think it's disrespectful to call the unaffordable care act obamacare. so no disrespect to the president intended by referring to his signature bill. but people have been hurt. people have been moved from full-time employment to part-time employment. they like their insurance policy, but then they found out they didn't get to
